Remove/Replace torsion bars

Can someone let me know how this is done the easiest before I take a look, can I remove one and then replace with the 23mm new one and then do the next bar?

You will have to remove both first then you can fit them. The trailing arm gets in the way of one.

with the bars out and anti roll bar you can then take the arms off if you wanted to check bearings while your there, which might be a good idea anyway, but you don't have to lol....

Follow Sandy's guide, here. It's been a while since I last looked at that document, but it should be applicable to fitting larger bars in place of the standard 19mm jobs.

In which case I wouldn't touch the arms - just take the torsion bars out and replace with new ones. If the bearings get contaminated they'll be buggered pretty quickly.
